Am 70 and have acid reflux for years. Got herbs from the Chinese doc and things are better. If you think that you might have ulcers, cranberry juice is great. I drink it with soda water to make it more palatable - no sugar. Find that sugar really starts the acid reflux. As long as I avoid it, I'm good. Also Health food stores have some good digestion teas that help.
I am so amazed by the fact that , for years i have gone to the doctor for a terrible stmache ulcer that i had. I was diagnosed at the age of 25. I was told that my ulcer was caused by a bacteria, H. pylori. Anyway, i was prescribe on numerous occasions, prevacid and prevpac.The prev pac cause me to get a yeast infection and bacteria vaginoisis that would not go away no matter what. finally, after years of suffering and research, i decided i was going to treat myself. I bought Diatomaceous earth, Clay (Terramin), and powdered wheatgrass. I mixed the diatomaceous earth together, half and half. The wheat grass did not taste so hot so i bought empty capsules and stuffed the wheatgrass in. Every morning before i eat i would drink a tablespoon full of my DE and clay mixture in an 8 ounce glass of water. I also at the same time take 4 of the wheatgrass capsules. I do this every morning and everynight before bed. within 2 week the pain in my stomache was gone. my yeast infection disappeared. the horrible smell caused by the bacteral vaginoisis disaapeared with only a small amount of discharge remaining. Also i suffer from fibroids and i no longer feel them nor the pain that they cause.

Ground Flax seeds cured my ulcers. When blood appears in my stool, I take 1 - 2 TBSP freshly ground flax seeds with hot water. I always take it in the morning and before dinner. The best if you take in on empty stomach.

I was feeling quite well until I had two cloves of raw garlic crushed up. It made my stomach feel awful and it never felt right since. I have been taking a lot of ibuprofen, steroids and antibiotics for a different problem for years so presume that has damaged my stomach and caused ulcer. I am now drinking cabbage juice and taking glutamine and have done for just over a week but so far still the same and today felt worse pain there.

Raw garlic virtually instantly cured stomach ulcer! Once I knew I had a duodenal stomach ulcer I check the net and read of many cures but none so obvious as garlic. The nausea of five weeks went away in two hours and the next morning my appetite had fully returned! Eight crushed cloves a day for eight days (on bread under humus or pesto) - miraculous!

I had a colonoscopy done because when I had my fisical they did a stool guiaiac test and blood was found (in my stool). The colonoscopy revealed that I have an ulcer in the small intestine. I don't have any symptoms and I have not seen any blood in my stool with the naked eye. Since I now know that I have an ulcer, I want to heal it naturally but my question is: how am I going to know when the ucler has healed if I have no symptoms?

I got an ulcer a few years back in the upper part of my stomach. The pain was so bad, it kept me awake at night. My doctor told me it was angina and that i was just getting old. I was 38! So I looked it up online and all the symptoms pointed to an ulcer. So, I looked up home remedies and found honey as one for ulcers. I made peanut butter and honey sandwiches for my lunches for a week. In one day I felt relief and in three days all symptoms were gone. During the past 3 years, I have felt the symptoms returning twice. Both times I drank honey right from the bottle, twice a day for 2 days, and it cleared right up. I use regular honey, you know the kind in the plastic squeeze bears, and it works for me. Thanks, earth clinic, love the site.

I had really bad pains from gastric ulcers and have found an instant cure to stop the pain in a few minutes. I took several spoonfulls of honey and glass of water and ate instant oatmeal in hot water and the pain lessened enough for me to go back to bed and sleep.

I use H202/baking soda, H202/colloidal silver. It has cured bad breath, whitened teeth and healed gum sores. The H202/colloidal silver cured a stomach ulcer caused by h pylori bacteria. H202 is marvelous. I have been using it to water my plants for about a year and only recently learned about it's other wonderful uses. I am going to start using Bill Munro's inhalation method shortly.

Kefir for Ulcers:
I have had chronic heartburn for months now, but about a week ago I started to have agonizing pains especially at night under my left ribcage, so bad that I haven't slept for days. My doctor doubled my Zantac from 150 mg once to twice a day, and I had Carafate that I used intermittently, but that didn't do. I also tried cabbage juice, slippery elm, DGL, Siberian Pine Nut Oil, bananas, probiotics, ACV, etc., and nothing helped -- until I tried plain, ordinary kefir.
I drank the first cupful of keir and I could feel relief fairly quickly, so then I repeated it often, as frequently every 2 hours or so, as soon as I felt the slightest discomfort, all day long. Today is my second day and the only reason I was able to sleep during the night was because I kept drinking it as soon as I could feel the burn/pain or before. I don't feel that agonizing pain now, and I don't appear to have the need for drinking it as frequently. Pain is an indicator and as of right now, it has diminished dramatically. I don't think things have healed yet, but it's significant that I feel so much better.
Kefir is a thick liquid full of probiotics, and it coats the tissues in addition providing the bacteria needed - and not quite the same as taking capsules. In addition, it's cheaper than all the other things I've tried that didn't work. I also reduced my food intake to softer, more easily digested foods, such as bananas, oatmeal and to non-abrasive, easily digestible foods just to keep from aggravating things, if only until I get straightened out enough and then just watch what I eat afterwards. I think I will still continue some of my medication to reduce acid, but only for a short time to make sure I continue doing well.

I'm recovering from stomach ulcers, and I wanted to share some of the things that helped me. The ulcers got so bad that I was vomiting blood, and prescription pills do more harm than good (plus, I don't have insurance, so I can't keep going to the doctor). The most helpful thing by far is licorice. There was a study done in Europe some time ago that found that only three things really help ulcers: rest & relaxation, quitting smoking, and licorice. Apparently licorice forms a protective coating against the lining of the stomach, and not only eases the pain, but also allows the ulcer to heal by protecting it from stomach acid. For some reason the study was never published in the U.S. You can buy chewable licorice extract pills (effective but disgusting) or drink licorice tea (a acquired taste but amazing stuff). Bananas also work wonders when your stomach feels like it's on fire with acid. Ginger also works really well for indigestion, and especially for nausea. I find that eating crystallized ginger is more effective than drinking ginger tea. However, the helpful effects of ginger don't last anywhere near as long as those of licorice.
